The GRIT Freedom Chair is an all-terrain wheelchair designed for efficient, low-impact adventure. Seniors can join the grandkids on a hike, take a stroll with your spouse, or just go for a few morning laps around the neighborhood to start your day off right, one lever-push at a time.
Whether you’re 75, 85, or are more of an “age is just a number, let’s just go outside” kind of person, the lever system on the GRIT Freedom Chair makes propulsion for seniors far easier than on a regular wheelchair. You can hit the local trail or stick to the sidewalks—with its sturdy mountain bike tires and anything-ready design, the GRIT Freedom Chair will help you stay stable and in control, no matter what.
Need a little boost? Our Trail Handles install in the back of the chair and allow a friend or family member to comfortably assist you with a Push Configuration.
If you want to stay active, we want to help make that happen. To start, meet a few GRIT senior riders and see what adventures they’ve been up to:
Meet Ruth Bush
“Beautiful day in the Pacific NorthWest. Picked up an attachment for chair to attach my dog leash and keep it away from wheels. About a 10 minute learning curve for my sweet dog Dusty. She did marvelous and seemed to love it. Wow I sure did. Have a wonderful day.”
Meet John Hollis
John is 70 years young! He is a military veteran having served in the Army for 3 years and the Coast Guard for 21 years.
“When I got my chair it was amazing, I got back my freedom. You can get out and do it!”
Meet David Ensign
“I am enjoying riding on various trails I used to cycle on ranging from paved to gravel to pea gravel-dirt. So nice to resume my cycling…good exercise and enjoying the outdoors. This week I will include grassy, level areas. Inclines next week.”
Meet Mike Bennington
Mike uses his chair for archery, shooting, exercise, and—soon—trips to the beach; his deliberate fitness plan and creativity help.
“Working with the GRIT Freedom Chair daily has improved my ability to go anywhere I want.”
